Today is National Lasagna Day


Easy Spinach Lasagna

Ingredients:
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
1 large jar RaguĀ© Spaghetti Sauce (use favorite variety, 1 lb. 10 ounce jar)
1/4 cup water
1 package (8 ounces) lasagna noodles
16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 lb. ricotta cheese
1/2 lb. small curd cottage cheese
1 small (10 oz.) pkg. frozen spinach (thawed & drained)
1/4 cup nonfat milk
1 egg, room temperature
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan/Romano cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:
Brown the beef, onion, and garlic in a small amount of oil in a frying pan. Drain off any grease.

Add the spaghetti sauce and water into the browned meat mixture. Mix well (note: you want the sauce to be a bit thin as the noodles will soak up the water during the cooking process).

In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta and cottage cheeses, spinach, milk, and egg. Beat until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Then mix in the mozzarella cheese and the grated cheese, so that all the cheeses are combined.

Spray the sides of the crock pot lightly with PamĀ© or similar cooking spray.

Put about 1/4 of the meat and sauce mixture in the bottom of the Crock Pot. Place a layer of noodles on top of that (break or cut them if needed). Layer about 1/3 of the cheese mixture on top of that. Then repeat with sauce, noodles, cheese for another 2 layers. Top with meat sauce. Cook on low for 6 hours or until noodles are tender.
